Peter Dyakowski has been around long enough that his Hamilton Tiger-Cats teammates should stop and pay attention when he speaks.

The guard is imposing enough with his 6-foot-5, 315-pound frame, but when he has something to say, it makes sense.

And when you’re the only team in the Canadian Football League at 0-2 heading into Week 3, help from any corner is a bonus.

For Dyakowski, in his seventh season patrolling the Ticats’ offensive line, the answers are simple.

“Football really boils down to perfect focus on every single snap,” Dyakowski said in a quiet Ticats locker room following a 30-20 loss against the Edmonton Eskimos in Guelph on Sunday.

“If you have that, then you are going to do your job properly. If you don’t have that energy, then you miss a lot of critical details. All of us have to look at what we did and what you can do to get better. If all 42 of us do that, we’re going to win next week."
